Two observations about “Copy To” in the Files Pane.

  1. The extension, e.g., .R or .yml, of the file I am copying doesn’t show in the “Choose Destination” dialog. But I can tell that implicitly it is still included. Can that be made visible for clarity?
  2. If I am copying onto an existing file, I get a pop-up that the file already exists. If I say “Replace”, I get an error “File exists” and the copy does not happen.

Version 1.1.383

Hey @jennybc, you are on a Desktop version correct?

  1. The extension shows up correctly on RStudio Server but on Desktop versions, there is no extension (tested on windows and mac).
  2. I get this as well on server and desktop versions and was able to reproduce on the latest 1.2.158.

Is this a regression relative to v1.0?

It isn't (Copy To is new in 1.1).

I've just fixed the "File exists" error. Thanks for catching that!

Re: showing extensions for clarity, that's an OS-level preference. Open Finder and check the "Show all filename extensions" preference and you should start seeing them in RStudio's file dialogs.

Marking as a patch candidate since Copy To is a new 1.1 feature.
